Michael has been simply amazing to work with. The care he took with our engagement photos and wedding photos was so amazing. Michael is the first person we booked for our wedding because we knew we couldn't get married without him. His attention to detail is impeccable . I cannot say enough praise for Michael and his work! We absolutely love him!

Michael documented our wedding this last September, and my family and I couldn't be happier with our experience or with his work. Michael is very professional and had a great little system for how he plans and shoots, but is also good about fitting himself into your plans. Even a relatively small "low-key" wedding like ours can be a little crazy-making, but Michael helped keep things tilted toward sanity. He had great suggestions for organizing the day so that we could spend the most time possible with our guests and just enjoying the day. Michael also has an uncanny ability to hone in on really important moments, and the really important people. He finds ways to get the most remarkable, lively shots, while being completely unobtrusive. And as a result, the pictures are really exceptional. In sum, he's great, and you should hire him.

Michael Tallman (or Michael Tallman Photography) was the only OUTSTANDING experience of my entire wedding. Every other person I worked with paled in comparison. He was easy to work with, smart, creative, relaxed, and most important - is what I'm about to say --

Michael Tallman is a true artist. An artist who happens to make his living documenting other people's life events. This is not true of all wedding photographers. I actually have yet to see another wedding photographer's portfolio that is as skillfully done as Michael Tallman. Now, as he is an artist, I had the privilege of having him work with me. Every bride who works with him does. And as talented as he is, I wouldn't be surprised if he moves on to another field in his artist's journey. If you book him - you are lucky. He combines classic technique, with modern and documentary style, which at the end gives you a tasteful combination of both color, and black and white photos, that are timeless, real, and not overly blurred from the photoshop.

If you want to look like a posing Cosmo model, go with a different photographer. If you want to have lifelong memories of your day, your event, the reality of the emotion and depth of feeling - I recommend Michael Tallman.

As the Mother of the Bride, I am delighted with the service of Michael Tallman. He was well-prepared as to his knowledge of family members and relationships and wedding details. He was in the background at all times as he took the pictures, not interfering with the flowing of the event. The pictures are extraordinary--beautiful color, creative settings, and traditional family member groupings that will be treasured. The picture of the wedding party with all of those attending the wedding is one of my favorites.

Like most brides, I did a lot of reading and research when planning my wedding. I read stories from joyous brides recounting their special day, with all the intricacies they had spent months planning going off without a hitch. When time fades and new memories vie for prominence, how are those details of your special day captured? It was with this thought in mind that I contracted with Michael Tallman to capture the memories of my day.

When my husband and I sat down to plan our wedding, we knew we wanted the feeling of our day to be this—a dinner party with our dearest family and friends. In our initial meeting with Michael, I had no idea of how to convey what I wanted our photography to look like. I didn’t have to. Michael drank coffee with us as we talked about our wedding, our hobbies, who we were as a couple. He got to know us. He knew what was important to us and the final product was beyond description. Michael captured the essence of our wedding, a priceless memory that will retell the story of our day forever.

Not only did Michael provide an exceptional product, but the experience of working with him could not have been more ideal. Always the utmost professional, he was prompt with communication, and we met in person a total of three times prior to the wedding. I was delighted when he wanted to attend our rehearsal to make sure he knew the venue and the wedding party members. That was a step above and unexpected. When you hire a larger chain photographer, oftentimes you don’t even know who your specific photographer is until they show up the day of. We felt like we knew Michael, and felt like he knew what we wanted, and that proved to be true. The best decision we made in preserving the memories of our wedding day was choosing Michael Tallman as our photographer.

Michael made our wedding. What would have been an awesome event, made hazy by time, has been stamped in vivid, lustrous detail. Before we married we had been to two friend's weddings that Michael shot. The first wedding made me realize I wanted him to be our photographer (my now husband and I hadn't even gotten engaged yet). The second wedding we attended simply sealed the deal. Michael is the epitome of professionalism, but with a friendly, easy charm. He can handle the toughest of family members without breaking a sweat. He took in all our creative input, and knew when to offer alternatives to make for even a better shot when the original idea wouldn't work. The most cherished skill I adore about Michael is his ability to catch the tiny intimate moments happening amongst the hubbub - those rare moments that could go unseen if not for this man's keen eye and skill with a lens. Hire Michael. You will not regret it, and you will not be able to stop pouring over the incredible images from your big day. "Thank you, Michael", we can't say it enough!

We are so happy that we had Michael as our photographer on our wedding day. He captured all the special moments and we ended up with so many "wow" photos. He was a pleasure to work with both before, during and after the wedding. Every single one of our friends and family who have seen the photos have been very impressed.

We had a fairly low budget DIY wedding- the one thing we did invest in was our photographer- we wanted the best. Everything else about the day aside from marrying the person you love is fleeting- but the photographs are forever. Mike was extremely easy to work with, very professional and flexible. He's such a professional he even gave us tips of how to decorate so the photographs would be more interesting. Which was great because he's been to a billion weddings and we've only planned one. He worked with our budget so we got the most "bang for our buck" and we came away from our wedding with BEAUTIFUL photographs, breathtaking really. Mike's style is such that each photo tells a story- and not one of them looks forced. The whole process was very natural. We did have the posed groups of people- which he did in fun and creative ways- but the rest just happened. After we discussed what we wanted photos of we left the rest to him and were so SO pleased with the result. I would highly recommend Michael Tallman Photography for any wedding as it may be the one thing you don't have to worry about once he's there- the photos will be amazing forever.

My wife and I used Mike for our wedding photos and could not be happier. He was flexible, easy to work with, took the pictures we asked him to, dependable, very professional, had very creative and good ideas for pictures and had a relaxed (yet business like) attitude at our wedding. The quality of our pictures could not have been better and captured our special night for all time. Do yourself a favor, take some stress out of the wedding process and get a photographer you can trust. I would recommend Mike to any friend of mine with no hesitation and with my utmost confidence.

The hardest working photographer you'll ever meet. From the beginning, Michael was very responsive, in fact, that's how he got our business. It was between him and another photographer, and he found the time to meet with us immediately.
He has a unique eye that makes every one of his shots amazing. I have, and will continue to, recommend Michael to anyone who needs a photographer for anything.

He perfectly captured our wedding day from the beginning to the shirtless groomsman ending. And all without added interruptions or hours spent posing for pictures.
